God Gave…


Our Church has been speaking recently on giving; hence the blogs on the same topic!

God asks us to be generous, with our giving and with our lives. To help people in need, and enjoy helping them in the process.

Think about creation. “In the beginning God created the Heavens and the Earth.” What a creation. He then finally created male and female, and what did he do? He gave us the whole earth, to bless it, and subdue it, and rule over the birds of the air and the fish of the sea. God gave to us.

After the fall, we were separated from God, and Abraham (and OT people) were connected to God by faith and righteousness. Then God GAVE us Jesus. John 3:16, a classic verse… ”For God so loved the world that he GAVE his only son, that whosoever believes in him, will not die, but have eternal life.” God gave us the ultimate gift in Jesus. Not that Jesus is just some sort of present that we consume. But he is the promised Messiah, the King of all kings, the Lord of all lords, a Saviour, a redeemer, a healer and a judge. God GAVE.

If God gives to us, my only response is to say, ‘How can I give to God and how can I give to others?’

This Father’s Day, think about it. Our Heavenly Father is worth some time. Our Father in Heaven is worth some focus, and thanks and prayer.

Thanks God for showing us how to give!
